Earth – A Beautiful Planet

A touching trailer for NASA’s IMAX documentary, “A Beautiful Planet.”

The movie shows us what it’s like to live on the International Space Station. Many astronauts report feeling the “overview effect” in space and transformed their minds after seeing Earth from space. It leaves astronauts feeling awestruck and gives them a newfound appreciation for the world as a fragile planet that we share.

Filmed in space and narrated by Jennifer Lawrence, NASA’s hoping we feel that way, too — and possibly inspire us to do more to protect our only home in the solar system. It fittingly comes to theaters on April 29, celebrating Earth Day (April 22).

National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore has spent the past ten years working on a massive project to document the world’s biodiversity, called the Photo Ark. The April issue of National Geographic magazine features Sartore’s portraits. Over the past decade, he has photographed more than 5,600 animals and says he won’t stop until he’s documented every one of the estimated 12,000 birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates in captivity.
